        This study examined the feasibility of introducing and applying a specialized program in the virtual museum on art education curriculum among 9th grade students, and the effectiveness of students' use of virtual reality and its impact on the educational environment. In this age, art education requires not only knowledge of art history or drawing methods and styles, but also a further knowledge in the field of digital media. The procedural application of this study was based on the qualitative method, through meeting 9th grade students daily, and documenting observations of the study sample, which consisted of (45) students from Dahiet Alameer Hassan-JSP School in Amman in the academic year 2018/2019. The findings of the current study illustrate the necessity of applying technology in the process of teaching an art education course, because of its great role in the stability of theoretical information, as well as in increasing the student's motivation to be more productive and active.
